The Ronson Crown is the most popular and probably the longest produced Ronson table lighter, first manufactured in 1936. There are two versions of the Crown. The first version produced between 1936 and 1948 has a radius on the top of the snuffer cap next to the flint wheel. The second version, like this one, has a flat top snuffer cap and was produced from 1949 till 1954. Because the Crown was so popular, Ronson manufactured millions of them (literally) and they are easy to find in non-working condition. Normally when I restore a lighter, I'll also clean it to remove grim, tarnishing and generally restore it's original austerity. But I was so taken with the smoke-toned patina the silver plating of this Crown developed over the years, I decided to leave it's exterior as-is. This unique Crown embraces the shabby-chic deco style.

Though it's outward appearance is untouched, it's mechanics have been fully serviced and this Crown now works flawlessly. I've completely disassembled its firing mechanism, cleaned the mechanical elements and snuffer, removed an impacted flint, trimmed/tested the original wick, and installed a new fuel cap washer to return this Ronson to excellent working condition. It will be shipped with a flint and without fluid. (If you don't plan to use this lighter occasionally, I recommend removing the flint so it does not deteriorate and become re-impacted over time.) I've provided high quality photos to offer the best preview of this Ronson. Please take a look and feel free to ask any questions.
